The Minnesota State House of Representatives is controlled by Democrats, while Republicans, thankfully, have the Senate.
The House just voted in favor of giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.
Because that’s how Democrats think in 2019.
From The Hill:
The Minnesota House voted Friday to allow undocumented immigrants to get driver’s licenses, setting the stage for a confrontation with the GOP-controlled state Senate.
The 74-52 vote marked a victory for the state Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL) Party and Gov. Tim Walz (D), who prioritized the issue for the legislative session, the Star Tribune reported. Two Republicans in the state House voted for the bill, while two DFLers opposed it.
Some Republicans in the state’s upper chamber say the bill welcomes undocumented immigration and could lead to voter fraud in the state.
“Immigrants, whether they are documented or undocumented, are Minnesotans. They are part of the fabric of our communities,” said House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler (D), according to the paper. “It is time that we helped take away this shadow of not having a driver’s license.”
“Minnesota shouldn’t be in the business of incentivizing illegal behavior, and by allowing illegal and undocumented immigrants access to driver’s licenses, that’s exactly what our state would be doing,” state Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen (R) contended.
Speaking of Minnesota, it is now being reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar has been holding fundraisers with groups tied to terror – in secret.
Think about that for a second.
From Free Beacon:
Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view.
The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public.
Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.
Is this any different than if a Republican Congressman held a secret fundraiser with a Nazi-affiliated outlet?
Imagine the outrage from the media, if that were the case.
Omar’s appearance at these closed-door forums is raising eyebrows in the pro-Israel world due to her repeated and unapologetic public use of anti-Semitic stereotypes accusing Jewish people of controlling foreign policy and politics. With Omar’s popularity skyrocketing on the anti-Israel left, it appears her rhetoric is translating into fundraising prowess.
It remains unclear what Omar has told these audiences in her private talks. Washington Free Beacon attempts to obtain video of past events were unsuccessful, and multiple local news and television outlets in the Tampa, Fla., area, where Omar spoke to Islamic Relief last month, confirmed they were unable to gain access to the closed door event.
Islamic Relief has come under congressional investigation for what lawmakers have described as its efforts to provide assistance to terrorist group such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. The charity has been banned by some countries as a result of these ties.
